About the guide

I have followed the arts trail but I have also climbed hard and my passion for the mountain has always led my steps. I grew up in the south, country with generous limestone walls, before I moved to Ecrins. Familiar with the major routes and demanding walls, climbing instructor before being guide, I have to communicate how essential it became in my life…
The mountain is for me and my friend guide Lionel, a sharing space where the difficulty is not the object, but it’s where we can offer the luxury and curiosity of the beautiful things, simple and useless…
Come on, shall we make our bags?
